Steiner Lecture in Creative Inquiry Co-Presented with the CMU School of Design
We live in a time where innovation is outpacing our ability to process their social/environmental implications. From technological innovations like self-driving cars, artificial intelligence and machine learning, IoT to system logistics improvements, crowdsourcing, and car & bike sharing … it seems that the future is being designed and realized faster than ever. More interestingly art and design are playing an increasingly central role in designing, rendering and implementing these futures.
In his presentation, Benedikt will talk about design as a vehicle to explore new roles, contexts and approaches in relation to the social, cultural and ethical implications of emerging and future technologies. Benedikt will illustrate these thoughts with various projects.
Benedikt Groß is a speculative and computational designer who works antidisciplinarily. His work deals with the fascination of relationships between people, their data, technology and environments. He is particularly interested to speculate about these relationships in the near future.
This lecture is made possible by the Sylvia and David Steiner Speaker Series and the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University.
